Hawkwind

Legendary space rockers Hawkwind are heading to Middlesbrough Town Hall as part of a 5-date tour to promote their new album Onwards, on Wednesday 30th May.

Following a string of sell out Christmas shows, featuring Levellers fiddle player Jon Sevink, and a run of major festivals across Europe that marked the groups 40th anniversary, the band are back on the road with their psychedelic spectacular.

With the Lord of space rock Dave Brock at the helm, ex-Gong synthesiser player Tim Blake on keys and Theremin, Mr Dibs on bass, long serving drummer Richard Chadwick, and Niall Hone guitar, Hawkwind’s stage show is truly unmissable featuring dancers, stilt walkers, psychedelic lighting and projections to the road.

Onwards will be the group’s 27th studio album, indicating the bands incredible durability. The band was created by former busker Dave Brock and was widely acknowledged with creating a brand new genre of music - space-rock. In 1970 they played at the first Glastonbury Festival.

Their trademark single Silver Machine, which featured Lemmy on vocals, brought the band to the attention of the wider general public after it reached number two in the UK charts.

The band have been an influential figure in the music scene, inspiring artists sucj as Al Jourgensen of Ministry, the Sex Pistols (who covered Silver Machine), Henry Rollins of Black Flag, and Ozric Tentacles.
